Diehl Aerospace has announced that it is opening a fully owned subsidiary in Singapore – Diehl Aerospace Pte – in a bid to support growing demand in the aerospace industry in the Asia Pacific (APAC) region. The Singaporean company is a joint cooperation between both shareholders of its parent organizations, Diehl and Thales.
This new company will also be the base for a revamped customer support center for all Diehl Aerosystems requirements in the APAC region. The new center will further transfer Diehl expertise from Germany to Singapore, fuelling growth in APAC and offering local assistance in terms of technical support, spares, repairs, and related services.
Diehl Aerosystems currently subcontracts its customer support facility for the region to Satair Group, but Diehl wishes to secure a front-end presence in its own right by creating the new entity. The center, where Diehl’s long-standing partner Thales will also play a major operational role, will be up and running by the end of the year.
